I’ve been desperately trying to write this post for about three hours but keep getting distracted. The first time by my online shopping quest to find the dream king size Christmas bedding set (haven’t found it yet, sob). The second time by a desire to drive to Tesco Express for fruit (I went for melon and grape). And the third time by a where are they now? Gimore Girls post which upset me to the core because it said Lorelai and Luke didn’t get on in real life and WHAT THE EFF. My world’s come crashing down.

But LOOK, I’m writing this post now, so huzzah.

I don’t want it to come across as an annoying blah blah blah this is what you want post because hey, you probs want everyone to just donate to Cats Protection on your behalf (v strong choice), so this is more of a pointer post you can leave lying about.

Something  you can accidentally on purpose leave open on your boyfriend’s laptop, or y’know, let your finger slip and woah oops, you’ve emailed it to your mum.

It’s the things we all kind of want a teeny tiny baby bit. A back-up list of things us twenty-something basic bitches wouldn’t mind unwrapping from our loved ones if someone had a gun to our head, y’know?

So here’s 11 things we all kinda (about 102% definitely) want for Christmas…

 

1. ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS MODERN RENAISSANCE EYE SHADOW PALETTE, £41

It’s crazy expensive, it’s hard to get your grubby paws on (there’s an actual WAITING LIST on Cult Beauty) and yet every sassy make up guru over on Instagram is basically have a bitch fit over it. I’ve seen it tagged in so many tutorials or cute af selfies that I’ve become brainwashed by a strong desire to buy one. I’m actually D R E A M I N G about them FFS.

So, why do you need it? The pigment is crazy strong, it lasts all day, is easy to blend and corr those warm, peachy pinky tones are utterly divine.  Shop here.

 

2. Z FOR ACCESSORIZE JEWELLERY, FROM £10

I’m a big lover of Accessorize’s in-house fancy schamncy jewellery line mostly because it’s super cute and delicate, easy to layer, and all either sterling silver or gold plated.

I wear my evil eye necklace every day and wore a babin’ ‘H’ initial bracelet until I caught it on a door and lol, it’s gone to jewellery heaven. This star ear cuff and these stacking rings are at the top of my wish list. Shop here.

 

3. THE POSH FLOWERS IN TESCO, £10

I treat myself to fresh flowers a lot but I always go for the budget ones, never the super sassy posh ones that are more beautiful than all the kittens in the world. My dream would be to get some of the pricey ones, some of the big £10 or woah, even the £15 ones. Girls love flowers and all that, right?

 

4. ASOS PYJAMAS, FROM £20

I mean, matching pyjamas from anywhere is pretty much the entire dream between Christmas Day and the 2nd January, but ASOS are really nailing it at the moment with their v cute two pieces. My fave are these jazzy cactus ones are these v cute Minnie Mouse ones. Shop here.

 

5. KATE SPADE BAG, AROUND £250

OK, so not every budget stretches as far as a couple of hundred quid, but the Kate Spade brand has lots of cute little presents that are a) super Instagrammable and b) so beautiful they’ll bring joy to you every damn day and c) way cheaper than a bag.

This pink 2017 diary is all my dreams come true, whereas this leopard print pouch is absolutely the one. If you ARE in the market for a little summin summin handbag shaped, I’m all heart eyed over the Orchard Street Arla Cross Body. Shop here.

 

6. GHD COPPER LUXE GIFT SET, £195

First off, the set is copper, and secondly, it comes with a super swish hair dryer and the BEST straightening irons GHD have ever created. What’s not to love? They’re designed to reduce hair breakage and increase shine, and let’s face it, GHD irons last for EVER. Or y’know, until you get drunk and throw your entire body weight onto them. Shop here.

 

7. SNUGGLY SOCKS

It’s not just me who secretly squeals with delight when she gets a really good pair of socks for Christmas? I’m talking the kind that are fluffier than a baby kitten’s belly. This pink faux fur lined pair look incredible.

 

8. QUAY AUSTRALIA SUNGLASSES, FROM £30

OK yeah sure, it’s not exactly gallivanting on a beach with a glass of Pimm’s and a super sassy pair of sunglasses weather, but there’s never a bad time for a pair of Quay Australia babes to come into your life. After all, you need something to hide your hungover face during crisp family walks over the festive period, y’know?

I’m despo for this pair to add to my collection – the My Girl shape is so flattering. Shop here.

 

9. JO MALONE PERFUME, FROM £43

(Although to be fair the candles and bath oils are pretty blinkin’ heavenly too). I’m a big fan of Peony and Blush Suede because it’s a super girlie and feminine scent, but I know Wood Sage and Sea Salt is also pretty big in the ol’ blogging world too.

Jo Malone fragrances are a little pricey for sure, but they’re a classic, and no-one’s ever been disappointed by opening one. Fact. Shop here.

 

10. ANYTHING WITH A MONOGRAM

Because look, LOOK, it has the first letter of your name on and zomg how special is that? Absolutely nailing it in the monogram arena right now is Anthrologie, who have these super sweet mugs for just £8 as well as these divine little velvet pouches and LOOK THE H IS IN BABY PINK AND CAN I BUY MYSELF A PRESENT? Shop here.

 

11. NYX MATTE LIP CREAMS, £5.50

For when you a bit broke and can’t afford any of the matte liquid lipsticks on the internet, you have NYX’s sassy budget version. Lol. They come in 75647856 colours (kind of), they last ages, have a bold pigment, and if you’re feeling mega fly you can buy this case with THIRTY SIX shades from Selfridges. Also, check out the NYX Lip Lingeries which have a similar matte effect. Shop here.

 

What else is on your Christmas list, eh?
